1 rtoy ========================== C M U C L 20 a =============================
3     [--- WORK IN PROGRESS ---]
5     The CMUCL project is pleased to announce the release of CMUCL 20a.
6     This is a major release which contains numerous enhancements and
7     bugfixes from the 19e release.
9     CMUCL is a free, high performance implementation of the Common Lisp
10     programming language which runs on most major Unix platforms. It
11     mainly conforms to the ANSI Common Lisp standard. CMUCL provides a
12     sophisticated native code compiler; a powerful foreign function
13     interface; an implementation of CLOS, the Common Lisp Object System,
14     which includes multimethods and a metaobject protocol; a source-level
15     debugger and code profiler; and an Emacs-like editor implemented in
16     Common Lisp. CMUCL is maintained by a team of volunteers collaborating
17     over the Internet, and is mostly in the public domain.
19     New in this release:
22     * Feature enhancements:
24     * ANSI compliance fixes:
26     * Bugfixes:
27 rtoy - CMUCL sometimes gets "stuck" during compilation where it is
28     trying to simplify the union of a large number of disjoint
29     numeric types. Previously, we handled the case of integer
30     types. Extend this to handle floats as well.

32     * Trac Tickets:
33     #31: pathname bug with :case :common
34     Fixed. The common case is applied to each part of the directory,
35     not to the directory as a whole.
37     * Other changes:
39     * Improvements to the PCL implementation of CLOS:
41     * Changes to building procedure:
43     This release is not binary compatible with code compiled using CMUCL
44     19f; you will need to recompile FASL files.
46     See <URL:http://www.cons.org/cmucl/> for download information,
47     guidelines on reporting bugs, and mailing list details.
50     We hope you enjoy using this release of CMUCL!
